Benjamin had a super-star day yesterday (celebrating his 15th week). First he trialed off the CPAP from 2am to 11am with no problems – that’s a personal best! Second he practiced with a bottle and took his whole meal on his own – no feeding tube. That’s 38ml (with a little extra for good measure) – and he did it in under a half hour. Amy is going to try a bottle again today and we’ll see how he does.
Ben was also really funny yesterday and was so alert and did not want to be put down. We sang him silly songs and stayed with him until he fell asleep and we could sneak out. He is acting like a real baby – who would have thought? His due date is next week, so while he will be dealing with issues relating to his prematurity for a long time, he is in baby territory now.
Still no news on his eyes… will update when we hear.
